Una aportación neoschumpeteriana al estudio de la cooperación entre empresas: la complejidad, el caos y las rutinas como elementos potenciadores

Sergio Berumen Arellano


Este artículo se centra en la necesidad de cooperación entre las empresas. La conformación de clusters es una expresión de la cooperación interorganizacional, muy estudiada desde el enfoque neoschumpeteriano, y se especializa en el flujo de productos, servicios, capitales, trabajadores y conocimientos entre los agentes que integran los sectores productivos de los países. Su conformación concede a los agentes participantes una serie de ventajas que de forma aislada difícilmente podrían alcanzar. Mediante la cooperación, a las empresas les es posible lograr una mayor flexibilidad y un más eficiente y eficaz acceso a nuevos conocimientos aplicados en las diversas actividades de la cadena de valor, todo lo cual podría redundar en la optimización de la competitividad.

Palabras clave

Cooperación entre empresas; clusters; complejidad; caos y rutinas.
